Product Description

About the Author

Jacob Aue Sobol was born in Copenhagen in 1976. He lived in Canada from 1994-95 and Greenland from 2000-2002. Since 2006 he has lived in Tokyo. After studying at the European Film College, in 1998 Jacob was admitted to Fatamorgana, the Danish School of Documentary and Art Photography. There he developed the photographic idiom that runs through his pictures from the East Greenland settlement of Tiniteqilaaq, where he went in autumn 1999. Over the next three years he lived mainly in this township with his Greenlandic girlfriend Sabine and her family, living the life of a fisherman and hunter but also photographing. The resultant book 'Sabine' was published in 2004 and was nominat- ed for the 2005 Deutsche Borse Photography Prize. In the summer of 2005 Jacob travelled with a film crew to Guatemala to make a documentary about a young Mayan girl's first journey to the ocean. The following year he returned by himself to the mountains of Guatemala where he met the indigenous family Gomez-Brito. He stayed with them for a month to tell the story of their everyday life. The series won the First Prize Award, Daily Life Stories, World Press Photo 2006. In 2007 Jacob became a nominee at Magnum Photos.

This is one of the nicest photo books I have purchased recently. Shipping was fast and accurate; I had it here with me in Denmark within a week.
